This was my second stay at the Wild Olive and it was every bit as good as my first stay in 2011/2012. I was delighted that some of the original staff were still there (the Wild Olive having had a change of ownership), especially Gillian who is the epitome of kindness itself. Thanks also to Cecilia and all the staff... More

This guest house was definitely a wonderful find, especially given the price. It is quite inviting with lovely spaces around the pool, dining room and lounge. My room was a bit small, however the bathroom was wonderful and spacious with a bath and shower. I really enjoyed the little touches such as having a gown provided; plenty of towels (very... More

Excellent and cozy small guest house conveniently located in a nice neighbourhood. Airport, downtown, Muizenberg all reachable by car within 15 minutes. Good breakfast. Ulf and Meike are great hosts and the personnel is very friendly. I will definitively come again for my next stay in CPT.

We were looked after exceptionally well at the Wild Olive guest house. Nothing was too much trouble and we spent a very relaxed time in the house and delightful garden. We had help ascertaining the state of the cable car up Table Mountain, booking a restaurant and organising taxis. The breakfast was excellent, offering a wide range of choice.

Lovely facility. Arrived late at night and very well received. Exceptional staff who make you feel very welcome. Rooms very comfortable and Wi-Fi was excellent. Beautiful gardens and pool. Would love to have had more time to enjoy the facilities. Very convenient and close to shopping and our points of interest. Excellent breakfasts. Would love to stay here again.

This was our second visit to the Wild Olive Guesthouse and we will return. We were made to feel very welcome, our rooms were immaculately clean, spacious and the bed was very comfortable. Wifi was excellent as were the amenities. We enjoyed time relaxing and swimming in the pool, which again was spotless. Breakfast was freshly cooked to order with... More
